One of Farrah’s critics questioned her credentials: “How can you be certified, you don’t know how to spell half the time ?.”
Farrah replied and explained that misspelling words shouldn’t be the focal point of her messages. “Social media posts nor my spelling needs to be perfect – learn to love imperfection ???,” Farrah told her critic.
Another commenter felt that the 30-year-old mom of one needs to focus on themselves rather than trying to help others: “Farrah, you’re not a mental health advocate. Nope! You’re not. You’re a mental health patient who clearly needs to focus on themselves.”
“You went to rehab… you aren’t certified in anything but being sober for 28 days,” wrote another one of Farrah’s detractors.
Another follower urged Farrah to let the mental health professionals handle giving advice: “Try and sound knowledgeable all you want, leave it to the professionals.”
Mocking Farrah’s recent parlay into stand-up comedy, one comment read, “Comedy gold ???.”
Following her stint in the mental health facility, Farrah shared that she was promoted to a sponsor. “When it’s only been 2 weeks certified & your asked to be a sponsor,” she captioned an Instagram Story slide.
Shortly before announcing her promotion to sponsor, Farrah revealed that she underwent a controversial brain scan, shocking Teen Mom OG fans. Farrah’s actions over the years have surprised Teen Mom OG, and her latest antics continue to have the same effect.
